Fredonia Native Noah Miller signs with Twins
MINNEAPOLIS, MN (CBS 58) - (UPDATE) - After signing with the Minnesota Twins on Thursday, July 22, Noah Miller travelled down to Fort Myers to quarantine for two days.
He will then begin about two weeks of workouts before playing with the Twins rookie ball team in the Florida Complex League.
"It's been chaotic, its been fun, its been exciting. I'm ready to get to work, this is just the beginning," Miller told CBS58 from his dorm room in Fort Myers.
Miller watched the draft with his mom, dad and sister while having his brother Owen on facetime. He worked out for the Twins before the draft and knew they were his best chance at being a first round pick. It's pretty surreal that both Noah and his brother are professional baseball players.
"It's awesome. My parents couldn't be more proud. My brother and sister couldn't be more proud of me either. they knew something was gonna happen. they didn't think it would be the first night(of the MLB Draft). It's kinda sinking in for them too that this is going to be the rest of my life," said Miller.
After being drafted 36th overall by the Minnesota Twins in the 2021 MLB Draft, Noah Miller is turning pro.
The Ozaukee graduate and Fredonia native signed with the Twins on Thursday, July 22.
Miller will now head to Fort Myers to the Minnesota Twins Minor League Complex.
His brother, Owen, is in the Cleveland organization which is also in the AL Central. The two brothers could face off against each other in the future.
